Creating safer streets Age friendly Ōtautahi

The Canterbury branch is excited to be partnering with our peers in UDF, NZPI and more to put on this event  – save the date of 10th November 2022!

Who is this session for?

Nau mai, haere mai – open to all members of the community, particularly those responsible for designing and constructing any aspect of our built environment, including, politicians, developers, planners, engineers and urban designers.

What is this session about?

Road safety and perceived safety are priorities for all public sector agencies and local communities. We all need to better understand and contribute to making our city more age-friendly for everyone whether they are 8 or 80 years old. Together the community and  professionals have a role to play in designing our built environment to deliver safer outcomes.

We will learn more about the lived experience of members of our community. This interactive session will introduce existing and newer audits, design guidance and how we can use them to create safer, inclusive and accessible environments for all. Focusing on ‘customer’ needs and using the design principles, we will challenge you to create inclusive designs for streets in Ōtautahi.

The workshop attendance cost is $10 for professionals, and free for students / advocates / unwaged. Lunch will be provided.

Come and learn from each other!

Speed and Infrastructure Programme presentation

The Waka Kotahi investment in safe system Speed and Infrastructure seeks to achieve around half of the Road to Zero target of reducing deaths and serious injuries on New Zealand roads by 40% by 2030. The Speed and Infrastructure Programme (SIP) is therefore a pivotal programme of targeted interventions which have been developed by applying the latest evidence base, and a number of projects are in various stages of planning and implementation.

This presentation will recap the principles and priorities that underpin the work SIP does to codesign these programmes, types of safe system interventions, speak to the delivery progress rates to date (challenges and opportunities), and will reflect on what it’s going to take to create the change we need to see on the network.

David (Rolly) Rowland is the SIP Area Programme Manager at Waka Kotahi responsible for supporting 20 local authority partners across the South Island to reduce the level of harm on their local road networks. Rolly believes that infrastructure builds the backbone for a thriving society, and we have a responsibility to be developing safe infrastructure that allows our communities to flourish today and for generations into the future. As a keen collaborator and effective communicator, Rolly believes in building strong relationships across organisations and communities.

Come along to hear Rolly speak about the work he is doing across the South Island for SIP.
